Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea secured Premier League golden glove with two games remaining. The Spanish man has kept 16 clean sheets so far this season, conceding only 41 goals.
Liverpool’s Brazillian goal keeper Allison is second with 14 clean sheets, but it became impossible for him to catch De Gea when he conceded against Aston Villa.
Despite winning the Golden Glove, de Gea’s United have suffered heavy defeats to Liverpool, Manchester City and Brentford, with a goal difference of 11.
Newcastle’s Nick Pope and Arsenal star Aaron Ramsdale, both on 13 clean sheets, are also unable to catch De Gea, who has been named the outright winner.
De Gea, 32, has come under repeated criticism this season, most recently for his error to allow West Ham to score in their win over United this month, but has been able to keep his team from conceding in almost half of their league games.
“Football is a game of mistakes and, of course, it was a really bad moment [against West Ham],” Ten Hag commented following the Bournemouth game.
Manchester City celebrated their third consecutive Premier League title on Sunday as a much-changed side was still good enough to beat Chelsea 1-0 at the Etihad.
Pep Guardiola’s men secured a fifth title in six seasons on Saturday when second-placed Arsenal were beaten 1-0 at Nottingham Forest.
After being defeated 1-0 on Saturday, the Gunners, who had been in first place for the majority of the season, are now four points behind City with just one game remaining.
Julian Alvarez, who has been Erling Haaland’s backup for the majority of the season, scored his 17th goal of the year to extend the English champions’ unbeaten streak across all competitions to 24 games, demonstrating the depth of City’s roster.
Guardiola made nine changes in all from the side that thrashed Real Madrid 4-0 in midweek.
The youthful hosts were still too sharp for the beleaguered visitors early on and took the lead on 12 minutes.
Raheem Sterling should have marked his return to the Etihad with at least one goal but was denied by a fine save by Stefan Ortega when one-on-one with the German goalkeeper.
Man City are only the fifth club to win three successive top-flight titles in England, following Huddersfield Town (1924-26), Arsenal (1933-35), Liverpool (1982-84) and Manchester United, who did it twice under Sir Alex Ferguson (1999-2001 and 2007-09).
Tottenham have confirmed that Lucas Moura will leave the club at the end of the 2022/23 Premier League season following the conclusion of his contract. Signed from PSG in January 2018, the Brazilian, to date, has scored 38 goals in 219 appearances for the Lilywhites.
Moura Scored a number of important goals in his time in north London, supporters will always remember the player’s contribution on their way to the Champions League final after his semi-final hat-trick heroics away at Ajax. His double in the 3-0 win over Manchester United and his flying header at Man City seconds after his introduction from the bench will also live long in the memory.
Having featured prominently over the past four seasons, Moura has been used less frequently for Tottenham this season and has made just 13 Premier League appearances, with injury not helping his cause. He has also been involved for Tottenham Under-21 side this season.
Tottenham host Brentford on Saturday in what could be Moura’s final home appearance for the club. They then conclude the campaign away to Leeds.
In August 2019 Moura scored just 19 seconds after coming on against Manchester City.

Mourinho, known for his defensive tactics, has stayed true to form this Europa League season, with the Europa Conference League holders conceding just three goals in eight knockout games on the way to the final.
Leverkusen, who have beaten Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and RB Leipzig at home this season, started brighter, with 20-year-old creator Florian Wirtz pulling the strings in midfield.
With a deficit to overturn, Leverkusen were on the front foot early on and Diaby came close to levelling the tie after being sent clear down the right, only for his fierce effort to rattle the bar and bounce clear.
The visitors held on through eight minutes of added time and will face Sevilla in the final in Budapest in late May.
West Ham reached their first European final for 47 years after Thursday’s 1-0 victory at AZ Alkmaar grappling a 3-1 aggregate success in the Europa Conference League semifinals.
West Ham hasn’t advanced to a European final since the 1976 European Cup Winners’ Cup, but they will have a chance to win their first significant prize since the FA Cup on June 7 when they take on Fiorentina in Prague.
While West Ham struggled in the Premier League this season they are unbeaten in Europe with 13 wins and a draw.
For Moyes it is another shot at European glory after they reached last season’s Europa League semifinals where they lost to eventual winners Eintracht Frankfurt.
Pablo Fornals scored West Ham’s winner in the final moments of the tense second leg to set up a clash with Fiorentina in the final in Prague on 7 June.
